Q550: How do I dispose of unwanted ammunition/firearms?
If you have unwanted section 1 ammunition then there are various ways of disposing of it:
- surrender at your local police station
- through a registered firearms dealer
- through another authorised firearm certificate holder
You must NOT dispose of it yourself.
Please note that all calls to police involving firearms are treated as if it is a genuine firearm so be aware that if you do wave an imitation firearm around you could find yourself surrounded by firearms officers pointing real weapons at you.
